Favorite Thing Thursday

A favorite things list...

1. Upcoming Trip to New Orleans

This was a last minute booking that I am uber excited for! In mid-December, I'm going to the Big Easy for the first time to visit my bud Laura before she moves back to London.

2. This Video Detailing My Life Philosophy

A short video to remind you what life should be about.

3. One Superficial Thing

A little funny to mention this after the video above, but sometimes a girl needs to spread the word on a good lip color! I'm diggin' this ultra cheap lip balm/stain from Jordana in the shade Cranberry Crush. It can be found at Walgreens for about $3.

4. Pie (Gluten Free)

My mom is on a special diet right now for diabetes, so I had to make a gluten free recipe for pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving. I feared how it might taste, but it came out pretty good! If any of you want me to, I can post the recipe. 


  1. I'm gluten free but don't eat pumpkin pie. I do eat apple pie though... cough cough.
    New Orleans! How exciting!

  2. I have always wanted to visit N.O. That's so exciting! And now I am craving pie at work :)

  3. I absolutely love New Orleans!! We go every year!!! I hope you have a fabulous time!!!

  4. So envious of your New Orleans trip! That's one place in the U.S. i've never been that im dying to visit!
